McKinney, TX (Aug 29, 2017) – Developing Solutions provides extensive network and protocol testing tools and references to assist 3G/4G/5G Network testing. The following is a list of just a few of the LTE/EPC/IMS testing capabilities provided by Developing Solutions‘ dsTest:
- Diameter, including DRA testing
- Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)
- ReSTful Network APIs
- VoWiFi/WLAN Interworking
- eMBMS/LTE Broadcasting
- Mobile Application Part (MAP)
- LCS (Location Services)
- 3GPP RADIUS
However, the Developing Solutions website contains extensive information these topics and others that can aid your testing, whether or not you are a user of dsTest.
Protocol Dictionaries, updated to the latest versions of the 3GPP Specifications – www.protocoldictionary.com:
- Diameter Dictionary – reference guide to aid the configuration and interpretation of Diameter test scenarios; In addition, your Diameter messages can be verified against specification standards even during high load conditions, or you can define your own dictionary xml schema to use your Diameter message validation;
- Radius Dictionary – aid for the configuration and interpretation of RADIUS test scenarios
- S1 Dictionary – aid for the configuration and interpretation of S1AP test scenarios
- GTPCv1 Dictionary – aid for the configuration and interpretation of GTPv1 test scenarios
- GTPCv2 Dictionary – aid for the configuration and interpretation of GTPv2 test scenarios
- MAP Dictionary –aid for the configuration and interpretation of MAP test scenarios
- M3 Dictionary – aid for configuration and interpretation of eMBMS/M3 test scenarios
Result/Response/Error Codes and Values, updated to the latest versions of the 3GPP Specifications:

Developing Solutions’ growing collection of protocol applications and Subscriber Management, Policy and Charging Control, EPC, IMS, CIoT/NB-IoT, eMBMS, SMS, and WiFi Interworking testing tools gives dsTest the ability to identify problems and potential bottlenecks in the lab before they show up in the network.
In addition to Control Plane interfaces, dsTest also supports User Data interfaces and testing.
dsTest runs on several distributions of Linux and is designed to take advantage of the latest processor and virtualization technology available with COTS hardware in order to provide high performance and capacity, and assists carriers and vendors in their drive toward network function virtualization (NFV) and software defined networks (SDN). Wireless Service Providers and Network Equipment Manufacturers rely on dsTest to for performance, compliance, and reliability validation of their network devices and architectures. dsTest is accompanied by the dsClient graphic user interface (GUI), which allows easy configuration and control of the tool, and provides live operational measurements monitoring in chart or tabular form.
dsTest further simplifies the process of testing the signaling core with multiple advanced testing features and solutions, such as VoLTE, CIoT/C-SGN, SmartEvents, Diameter Dictionary validation, and SmartAVP.
